Blacksburg police are searching for a man they say shot at a Virginia Tech student overnight.
Authorities are NOT identifying the 22- year- old male victim.
They say he was involved in an argument in the parking lot of the Sheraton Hotel on Prices Fork Road around 12-30.
The other person fired one shot from a 40- caliber handgun at him at close range, but the bullet did not strike the victim, who suffered powder burns to his face.
When an officer arrived, the suspect fled.
